First came the flier in the mailbox that says Bill Wielechowski, the most diehard Democrat in the Senate, defends Libertarian values.
Now, it appears that he is sharing campaign office space with the Democrat-turned-independent Vince Beltrami.
Beltrami, according to Alaska Public Offices Commission, is using the Alaska Democratic Party to file his reports.
BILL WIELECHOWSKI LITIGATING HIS WAY THROUGH ELECTION
In a local advertising mailer, Democrat Sen. Bill Wielechowski placed this ad during the campaign 30-day window ostensibly to give people an update on the lawsuit he has filed against the Permanent Fund Corp. over the governor’s taking of half of Alaskans’ Permanent Fund dividends. Problem? No “Paid for by” disclosure on it, and it’s clearly intended to help him win next week. Will the Alaska Public Offices Commission punish him? Not likely.
EARLY VOTING, ABSENTEES BY THE NUMBERS
As of Wednesday, early voting totals 22,281, and absentee ballots voted total 23, 702. There were 43,526 absentee ballots requested. Highly unusual is that more Republicans than Democrats are participating in early voting. Since 2008, Democrats have tended to carry the early vote, but this year, Republicans outnumber Democrats in the early voting.
